    AutoCAD CADDuct (MEP) Command List

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I've got a list of every single unique command for CADDuct. I found at least 10 of these useful to my everyday and I hope you might do as well.

    Post 1

    CAD-Duct Solids Commands Most CAD-Duct Solids/CAD-Mech commands are available via the icons or menu, although some commands can only be accessed via the command line. All available commands are listed here, where a command can be accessed through a menu or an icon, this is detailed in the explanation. For more detail, select the hyperlinks.

    ADDREPORT - Allows item reports to be configured and positioned in the drawing.

    ADDSERVICETYPEBLOCK - Command to add a Block with the same name as the items “Service Type” to all “out” nodes of the model. This is used to highlight the positions of nodes within a drawing, marking the ends of all thread/drop rods on hanger patterns, for exporting to the “Total Station” GPS system.

    ALIAS - Toggles Item Alias text (on/off).

    AlignMapText Lisp Function - New Lisp function that aligns the text of a selection of items to the required alignment (Length, Connector or View).

    ALIGNTEXTX, ALIGNTEXTL, ALIGNTEXTC - Commands to change the default alignment of text already in the model, to Align with the View direction(X), Length(L) or Connector(C).
    APPINFO - Gives access the following program information:
    · Program version
    · Program Lock version
    · Dongle Lock version
    · Programs working directory
    ATTACHER - Sets/Rotates the Attacher tool.
    ATTACHOFF - Turns off the Attacher tool.Attacher commands can also be accessed via the Right Click menu Set Attacher/Hide Attacher as well as the attach arrow icon

    BSPOOL - allows the generation of multiple batches after they have been defined by using the Spooldwg command (see SPOOLDWG, SPOOLDIM command).

    CACHEREPORT - Reports the efficiency of pattern caching, creates a DEBUG.LOG file in the working directory (use the APPINFO command to locate the working directory)

    CHECK - Performs collision detection on all CAD-Duct items within the drawing. Item collisions are marked as green circles at item intersections. To remove collision indication after adjustment, repeat the CHECK command.
    CHSPEC - Allows the Items Specification to be changed, users can select whether straight lengths are repaired (due to different connector adjusts) and whether fittings are allowed to be stretched.
    CONNFLAG - Toggles which connector type is ignored when attaching CAD-Duct Items together (Connector: None or Locked).
    CONNMATCH - Allows changing a pair of connectors or a single connector without editing the item.

    CONVERT3DMODEL - Command to extract any 3DSolid/Mesh, or collections, into a CAD-Duct/CAD-Mech model. This enables it to be displayed in PM2000 and can also be used to do “Run Time” collision detection while modelling. Ability to automatically extract the connector position, type and size data is included.

    CONVERT3DSOLID - Converts an AutoCAD drawn Solid (cubes) into a MAPS-Solid object, ideal for converting walls, slabs and objects that represent concrete structures to objects that CAD-Duct can “run time” collision detect against.

    COPYDESLINE - Allows an existing Design Line to be copied and offset by user specified Horizontal and Vertical offset values.
    COSTBD - Shows a breakdown of costs for selected item(s).
    CREATE2D - Creates an additional flat 2D image of the 3D model (selected item(s) are placed on 2D Layers @ Z - 0).
    CREATECAM - Saves all or selected parts of the drawing as a CAM output file. The user has the option to Save As:
    · *.MAJ - Uses the CAM Database
    · *.ESJ - Uses the CAD Database
    Can also be accessed through the Right Click menu CAM
    CSVEXPORT - Exports item data - can also be accessed from Shift/Right Click menu Export > Item Data
    CTEXT - Allows the user to configure custom item text (using a predefined ADDREPORT) - CTEXT scales the Block by the value entered for the assigned Text Style.

    CTEXTREPORT - Lists an Items report name at the command line.

    CUTINX - added as a work-a-round for drainage problems i.e. initially taking off a flexible ‘T’ won't be setup with the correct angle. Tools provided (e.g. FIXER command) are available to setup the angles on an object in the drawing, so now the CUTINX command allows such a drawing-resident objects to be Cut-In.
    DESLINETEXT - Adds the text to a design line as Autocad text, not object text, can also add a the standard engineering block called design4way, with 4 attributes, they are filled in with the text setup in Annotation settings in the design line.
    DETECT - Runs collision detection; checks all items in the drawing against the extents of other non CadDuct objects e.g. extruded lines, solids, 3D faces etc.
    DSETS - Toggles 'Transitions and Sets Text' label on tapers/offsets/sq-rnds.
    DUCTCALC - This command allows you to calculate equivalent Round/Oval Rectangular width/depth sizes based on numerous parameters.
    Additionally any two from the following can be input and the remaining two calculated: Diameter – Velocity – Flow Rate – Pressure Drop
